Mack Trucks is playing a key role in a new partnership that delivers supplies for nonprofit organizations to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mack originally donated a pair of 2019 Mack Anthem trucks to the American Trucking Association for use in a couple of the organization’s outreach programs. However, those programs weren’t able to hold events due to COVID-19, so Mack cleared the trucks to make deliveries of food and personal care items instead.
Operated by ATA volunteer drivers, the two Mack Anthem trucks are making their supply runs in coordination with the American Logistics Aid Network. Organizations around the country like Joshua’s Heart and Feed the Children receive the deliveries and give out the supplies as needed.
“In good times and bad, the trucking industry moves nearly three-quarters of our nation’s freight, helping ensure crucial supplies are delivered where they are needed,” said Martin Weissburg, president of Mack Trucks. “Working in partnership with ATA and ALAN enables us to more effectively marshal resources and deliver supplies to organizations addressing the needs of local communities across the country.”
Mack Trucks says it plans to participate in these deliveries as long as demand remains in these unprecedented times.
